window vista experience

The Windows Vista User Experience represents a new design philosophy that delivers a compelling user experience from the moment that you start interacting with the computer to the moment that you leave it.

In the past, Windows focused heavily on discoverability, time to task, and task completion. The Windows Vista User Experience continues to deliver on discoverability, time to task, and task completion. From folders to animations, thumbnail views to the glass look of interface elements, Windows Vista is nothing short of stunning.

Working with Windows Vista is all about seeing, finding, organizing, and confidently controlling your information and your computer desktop. Together, the new Windows Vista user interface is streamlined, useful, and efficient to work with.

Windows Vista provides a solid visual experience, free of flicker, redrawing, hesitation, latency, and visual artifacts. New productivity tools bring clarity to information on your computer—you can see what your files contain without opening them, find applications and files instantly, navigate efficiently among open windows, and traverse wizards and dialog boxes more confidently and surely. And the visual sophistication of the Windows Vista environment streamlines the experience across the board by minimizing and refining common visual elements to minimize distracting interface and focus on content, information, messages, and choices.

Glass and Animations
Windows Vista includes refinements that make your experience smooth and sophisticated. In computers that can use the new Windows Vista Display Driver Model (WVDDM), windows are translucent, meaning that it's easier to focus on the content of a window rather than the window itself. This feature (along with other window design enhancements on all Windows Vista computers) reduces distraction and streamlines your work while making windows easier to manage.

Overall, the Windows Vista experience is more polished, smooth, and refined on all computers. Even details such as how windows move when they are minimized have been improved-when minimized, a window now clearly minimizes to a thumbnail on the taskbar where it resides, making it easier to locate later.

Flip and Flip 3D
Windows Vista provides two entirely new features to manage windows codenamed "Flip" and "Flip 3D". Flip allows you to flip through open windows (by using Alt+Tab) providing a live thumbnail of each window rather than just a generic icon and filename. Live thumbnails make it easier to quickly identify the window you want, particularly when multiple windows of the same kind are open. With Flip 3D,you can use the scroll wheel on your mouse to flip through open windows in a stack, and quickly locate and select the one you want to work with. This feature is even handier when you use it with the new Flip 3D key that manufacturers are adding to many keyboards.

New scalable thumbnails are used throughout Windows to show you the actual first page for documents, the actual photo for photos, a screen capture for videos, and album art for individual songs. By previewing the actual contents of a file at a glance, you'll find what you want more quickly without the trial-and-error of opening files to preview them.

You'll find thumbnails in the Explorers as live icons; when you rest the mouse pointer over a minimized window on the Task Bar; and when you flip through open windows using the features codenamed "Flip" and "Flip 3D".
